Research Summary

My research focuses on critical regionalism or "postregional" literary and cultural production with an emphasis on the US West and Southwest or Greater Mexico. In practice, this focus includes critical work ranging from postmodern geography and theories of the local to literary production on both sides of the US-Mexico border, from environmental nature writing to the popular culture imagining of urban "New Wests."
